It's Christmas Day in a nameless state-run mental institution where the inmates are subjected to a tirade of mindless cruelty. A maniacal and self-obsessed leader breeds a contagion of hierarchical savagery amongst his staff, who thrive on a noxious diet of delusion and deceit. Under a veil of devilish wit and subversive humour, Pinter's biting political commentary on the perils of unchecked power is as vital and pertinent today as when it was written in the 50's.'Performers Leo Bill, Finbar Lynch, Stephen Moore, Paul Ritter, Lia Williams, Henry Woolf, Peter Pacey, Mike Aherne, James Alper, Colin Haigh, Daniel Harcourt, Rosie Thomson.
